I am trying to connect to an Xauth Ipsec VPN, I have entered all my relavent infromation and the VPN seems to fail without an error that I can debug.

Uses Username/password, Group name and then a mutual PSK between all users.

Error:

May 17 15:24:17 xps NetworkManager[824]: <info> VPN service 'vpnc' disappeared

If anyone can give me any pointers into debugging further, I would be very grateful :)

  • I'm having the same issue with version 1.5.3-2ubuntu4.2 on Linux Mint 17.1. This morning my connection to the VPN worked fine, my machine went to sleep and now I can't reconnect, even after a clean reboot.
